HUNTSVILLE TEXAS REAL ESTATE IS PROUD TO BE BEAUTIFUL.
Way back, I'm not saying how far, I hold in my mind a memory of Paradise. It is a memory of an oasis in the middle of the Texas Piney Woods. I had never seen anything so beautiful. As a young teen my friends and I would pile into a car and head for what we called the Rock Quarry. The Rock Quarry was out in the middle of Pine Forests in the quaint town of Huntsville, Texas.
Dive into the Blue Lagoon...What's hot about our spot?
Many of us can reach back to our childhood memories, pull them out of our
pocket and manage to smile. This memory is a great one for me!
We would drive down a dirt road through massive Pines, old fences, bluffs and the occasional broken down cabin. We came to a clearing that I was certain God had placed there for me! It was an Oasis just for us!
We would park and walk a few steps and we would be at the edge of the most beautiful white rock bluff that dropped sharply to the bluest water I had ever laid my eyes on.
It was the spot I got most of my sunburns. It was the spot I dared to jump from the bluff into the clear depths of infinity. We would swim till our arms would not let us anymore.
We would sun on the bluff as if worshipping the sun and the sky. We made memories of paradise.
I'M GOING TO TELL YOU ALL ABOUT PARADISE! FOUND IN HUNTSVILLE, TEXAS.
I've just discovered that it's still there! I have been back in Huntsville for 12 years now. I have asked everyone where it was! No one could answer...
Weird, huh? Well, Adam Waldman, of Local Expert of Active Rain Network encouraged us to learn more about our area, write articles and publish as a ReLocation Package. I listened and I did it.
Voila! The internet is amazing, wonderful and full of answers! I FOUND MY PARADISE and now it can be yours too!
What I learned: In 1986 my rock quarry was turned into a Professional Diving Resort! Here's the scoop.
Primarily for divers; sparkling artesian springs feed old rock quarry creating a beautiful environment for scuba diving.
Submerged boats, planes, and platforms are strategically placed in two lagoons. How cool is that? Non-divers must be accompanied by diver. This means, of course, I may never be able to swim here again...Open Mar. - mid-Nov.
